Ancient Systems of Weights, Measures and Currencies

Part of the Science Networks. Historical Studies book series (SNHS, volume 56)


In this section, I have chosen to gather information on some of the countless number of ancient and medieval sovereign states and kingdoms, about which I found some reliable and relevant information. The immensely complex relationship between them, albeit chronologically and geographically scattered, has been a major challenge to illustrate in a certain sense. Here, we also must take into account their geographic location, commercial activities, technological knowledge and the ability of their rulers.
